What is Simple Assault?

Contrary to what many people believe, you can be charged with a crime of assault without actually hurting or striking a person. According to Georgia Code §16-5-20, assault is a crime of attempting to cause violent injury or taking actions that cause another person to fear suffering a violent injury. If a deadly weapon or intent to commit a violent crime is involved, the charge could even be raised to aggravated assault.

The Penalties for Assault in Georgia

A misdemeanor simple assault conviction is punishable by the following:

  • County jail sentence of up to 1 year

  • Monetary fines of up to $1,000
  • Probation of up to 1 year
  • Expense reimbursement to victim (restitution)

Depending on the situation, assault may be considered a misdemeanor or a felony. Individuals who have been accused of assault should get informed about the full extent of the charges, because the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony is several thousand dollars in fines, years in jail, and harsh consequences for your criminal record.

A felony aggravated assault conviction results in increased penalties, such as:

  • Prison sentence of up to 20 years

  • Monetary fines of up to $5,000
